Orchids and dangly things

I forgot to take photographs of my orchids.

My orchids seem to flower for a very long time (months and months) and then all the flowers drop off at the same time and then about 3 weeks later they all flower again.

The dark purple one is my oldest. I bought it in a sale for a £1 as I moved into this flat it was looking very dead! I loved it back to life and it has flowered for me for a year and a half.

The yellow one was a birthday pressie last year from Steve and has flowered all the time too.

The light purple one was given to me by my neighbour in February. It had been a Christmas pressie and had flowered and then the flowers had dropped off so she had cut it all down! She was fed up with it as she thought it was an ugly plant! I've looked after it and it's taken 6 months for the new stalk to grow.

Yesterday, after a 3 week spell of quiet they all flowered again!

And a picture of all my dangly things in my conservatory!
